[NAMM] Dave Smith introduces the Prophet 12
32 years after the first synth, Dave Smith relaunches at NAMM 2013 the Prophet in a 12 voice polyphony version.
With a 5-octave keyboard, the Prophet 12 boasts a 12 voice polyphony. Each voice features four oscillators capable of generating classic and complex waveforms, a sub-oscillator, resonant analog low- and high-pass filters, and analog VCAs.
The new Character section adds a variety of wave shaping and sound sculpting options, like Drive, Hack, Decimation, Girth, and Air.
Additional features include a tuned feedback path, a four-tap stereo delay per voice, expanded arpeggiator functionality, deep modulation capabilities, and bi-timbral operation.
The LFOs, delay, and arpeggiator can all be synced, either to the internal clock or an external MIDI clock.
Two programmable position- and pressure-sensitive touch sliders take the performance controls beyond the standard pitch and mod wheels also included.
The Prophet 12 is expected to be available Q2 of 2013 with a projected MAP of $2,999. More information soon on www.davesmithinstruments.com.
